Well I haven’t hit it in a couple of years now, but the damage was done in the late 80’s, another one I like not to do is , slam the #2 screw tip into my index finger on the left hand when trying to hurry up with screwing off plywood on steel studs.Stop doing that, Mitch. It's bad.

Thats around the time I joined Hmmm coincidence?Many different new folks here now than in the past . A couple years back I had to dismiss / ignore this place as it had lost a lot of good members and began filling up with a bunch of morons . I slowly came back to see what was up , but still tread the waters carefully for snakes n trolls . So far all is pretty good . No , I'm not perfect , but I am peaceful , and would rather walk away from disturbed aggressive smartasses . Peace to all .
I feel your pain my friendWell I haven’t hit it in a couple of years now, but the damage was done in the late 80’s, another one I like not to do is , slam the #2 screw tip into my index finger on the left hand when trying to hurry up with screwing off plywood on steel studs.
I understand, thx for the explanation. Regarding my neighbour, yes it's terrible and such things shouldn't happened. I don't know what went wrong, so i can only guess how it came to infection etc.The nail came off from the back side of the thumb, I was wrapping tape or band aids around it, so it wouldn’t catch on everything, by the time it got caught in the guitars strings, and I ripped it off.. the front of my thumb had a nice callous to it.
But the top was still kind of tender, so I kept wrapping it it with a band aide, as the new nail was coming out..
Sorry to hear about your friend, that sounds terrible.
Think about it. If nails grew from the bed up, they'd get thicker and thicker as they grow. If they grow from the cuticle forward, they will remain at the thickness they were formed at in the nail bed near the cuticle. Simple logic. And nail growth is well documented. It's not a biological mystery. Yes, they grow forward from the cuticle, not up from the bed.
I think this place is kind of short on arrogant posters because it's very much a knowledge based forum, and if you lack knowledge, you'll soon get an education that helps to cure that deficiency, and it'll usually be given rather politely.
It's hard to be wrong, arrogant about it, and continue to maintain that arrogance when subject matter experts have thoroughly debunked your mistaken beliefs beyond even your own ability to doubt them.
Yes this is a great forum to be a member of.. I have only been here since 2018 .. but I did lurk for a couple of years before joining.. and I have met some great internet friends here and I have also met 2 members in real life..IMHO Everything can be said in a polite way and I don't mind different opinions.
Maybe I'm still under impression plus i have no idea what was going on in the past, but for now i like it here a lot. For example i saw that there are great threads here were people help each other, beside amps which were the main reason to join in i can see that is possible to talk about other guitar related topics.

Remembering the time I had an ingrown nail on my big toe, got infected. Eventually had to go to the old country doc where he gave me a Novocaine shot, left the room, and came back with three nurses. They held me down, I'm on my back, he says this might sting a bit. Then he jammed one of those curved type clippers/pliers under my nail all the way to my cuticle, blood spewing out etc, I got three holding me down but I manage to arch quite high. I was shouting in tongues...something satanic likely anyway. Then he clipped and ripped it out. I think I was 12.
To this day I wear oversized shoes or sandals so that can't or will not happen ever again...ever!
When I got the clap I went to a different Doc...out of fear. I heard horror stories how they used to treat that.
First thank you for the well meaning concern.I worked on a project about 20 years ago, related to the protection of patients rights. So it happens that doctors make mistakes. I think that one gave a small dose of local anaesthesia or He should apply it in a several places in the base of your toe. Only when He 's sure that you don't feel the pain after some time to start the procedure, He was problem thinking you are young and strong and He was in hurry i assume.
Thank you, it's OK to wish to people all the best and share what We know when someone suffers, for me any sort of pain or issue nowadays or in the past are triggering an empathy.First thank you for the well meaning concern.
I don't know what ethics doctors are taught now but It is quite possible that in 1974 those ideas were only just beginning to be accepted. The doctor I saw in 1974 was old, like maybe 65 or older even. That puts him out of medical school, lets say he was 28 - he finished in 1937. That is back when Eugenics concepts were being discussed. I'm not saying he was one of those that bought into that. I'm just pointing out that at that time modern medicine was still in its infancy and I doubt he was subjected to much in the way of treatment of patients ethics. The main concern was to do no harm by healing.
The infection was local to the nail and not in my blood stream and he did give me penicillin pills to take afterward. I do not hold a grudge toward that doctor. I may have some trauma lingering but the brain makes you forget most of it. Finally, that is just the way things were back in the 70's as far as I know.
I'll just take it out on my guitar
